resident of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, yesterday, assured Nigerians that the National Assembly would continue to work with President Muhammadu Buhari to find lasting solutions to the current insecurity in the country.
According to a statement by Ezrel Tabiowo, Special Assistant (Press), to President of the Senate, Lawan stated this while at Malumfashi in Katsina State, to grace the occasion of the Constituency Empowerment programme sponsored by Senator Bello Mandiya representing Funtua Senatorial District in the Senate.
He commiserated with the people of Katsina over the recent deadly attacks in the state by the bandits, which left many people dead and many property destroyed.
“I want to assure you that we are going to continue to work with President Muhammadu Buhari till we are able to find lasting solutions to this problem of insecurity in our country.
“We will also ensure that government provides infrastructure across the country that makes life meaningful for Nigerians,” Lawan said.
The occasion, which drew a large crowd of party faithful and supporters, was also attended by Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State.
Lawan applauded Senator Mandiya for his initiative in empowering his constituents and assured him of his support.
“Today, we are supporting a young man, who has been supported by the people of Funtua zone. Senator Bello Mandiya has been a very loyal, committed and reliable Senator.
“I want to inform you, his Senatorial District, that you have found a worthy successor to Senator Abu Ibrahim in Senator Mandiya.
“They say the young shall grow. This young Senator will grow very rapidly because he has very good hands taking care of him.
“For me, I remain committed to making sure Senator Bello Mandiya succeeds and he grows and mature into a great Senator,” Lawan said.
